GM has applied small price increases to certain models in recent weeks as rising shipping costs for goods continue to rise. The 2022 Buick Envision compact crossover has not been shielded from these changes, with GM applying a minor price increase to the compact crossover that will make it $200 pricier regardless of the trim level or options chosen.
GM has raised the price of the 2022 Buick Envision’s mandatory destination freight charge from $1,195 to $1,395. The destination freight charge is the same across the board regardless of trim level or options, so this will result in a $200 price increase for all Envision configurations. With this change, the base price of the Envision in the entry-level Preferred trim level with front-wheel drive will start at $33,340.

Production of the Buick Envision takes place at the GM Jinqiao plant in Beijing, China. This facility shifted to production of the 2023 model-year Envision on April 4th, 2022. It’s unclear when 2023 Envision units will begin arriving at dealerships in the United States.
The 2023 Buick Envision represents the third model year of the crossover’s second generation. GM has elected to drop the Satin Steel Metallic (paint code GIR) and Burnished Bronze Metallic (paint code GR8) exterior colors from the Envision order books for the 2023MY, both of which will likely be indirectly replaced by two new colors. GM has also gotten rid of the In-Vehicle Air Ionizer system, expanded availability for the Continuous Damping Control suspension system and added a new 18-inch wheel option for the 2022 model year.
GM’s turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, which is rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, comes standard in the 2022 Envision. The four-cylinder is paired with the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, with front-wheel drive standard and all-wheel drive available for a price premium.
